EverFi Certified Teacher FAQs

What is the EverFi Certified Financial Education Teacher Program?

The EverFi Certified Financial Education Teacher Program is a self-guided curriculum, consisting of tutorials and hands-on work, that will allow educators to earn a microcredential in Financial Education instruction.

What are the dates for the April 2017 cohort?

Applications will be accepted until April 10th. Acceptance emails will be sent on April 17th and the cohort will run until June 16th. Teachers can complete the micro-credential requirements at any point during these eight weeks.

Who can apply?

We believe that all educators play a role in ensuring students are prepared to make sound financial decisions. We will consider U.S. and Canadian teachers of all subjects in Grades 3-12, as long as they are committed and able to integrate online financial education resources into their classroom.

What do I need to do to earn the microcredential?

To earn the microcredential, teachers must watch the training videos, complete an implementation plan, reflect on their implementation, and then train a colleague. If you are interested in joining this semester’s cohort, please complete the short application form below.

What are the benefits?

Certified Teachers receive a digital badge for their email signature, resume, and website, as well as a certificate identifying them as an official EverFi Financial Education Certified Teacher.  

Additionally, certified teachers are periodically invited to participate in roundtable conversations with EverFi’s curriculum design team, to give feedback on products and features, and to receive early access to beta versions of new courses.

How much does the certification cost?

The micro-credentials are externally evaluated by Bloomboard, and therefore cost $30 per certification. It does not cost anything to apply for the cohort.

How long will it take to earn the microcredential?

The total amount of time will vary by individual, but you should be able to complete all of the program requirements in about 6 to 8 hours.

I have never used EverFi in my classroom before. Can I still apply?

Yes! We’ve designed the curriculum to be beneficial for teachers new to the critical skills movement, as well as those who have been using EverFi’s resources for years.

When does the next cohort start?

Applications are now open for our April 2017 Cohort! Applications may be submitted from now until 4/10, and then acceptance emails will be sent out on 4/17. The program is self-paced, and participants will have eight weeks to complete the requirements.

Is there a STEM version of this certification?

We are planning to build a STEM certification program for the 2017-2018 school year. Currently, teachers can apply only for the Certified Financial Education program.

Can I earn PD credit for this micro-credential?

Teachers who earn the micro-credential receive a certificate stating that they have completed eight hours of professional development. Each district is different in what they require, but many teachers have received PD credit for completing the program and submitting their certificate.

Is this program entirely online?

Yes, the program is completed entirely online. Participants will have access to a virtual kickoff and online “rooms” where they can receive support during the program.

Will you be running additional cohorts in the future?

Yes, we plan to run spring and fall cohorts of this program. More information and dates will be available on the website as we get closer.
